Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek Highlights

  • Reach the base camp of the highest mountain on Earth, Everest
  • Enjoy a luxurious helicopter ride to Lukla
  • Witness the scenic views of Everest, Ganesh Himal, Makalu, and many more

A well-known destination of the Eastern Himalayas, the Khumbu region holds tremendous natural beauty waiting to welcome you.

The starting point for almost every trekker arriving in Nepal is Kathmandu. Our team will welcome you at the airport and orient you about the hustling concrete jungle of Kathmandu. Then, you will meet the guides, who’ll accompany you throughout the trip. If the equipment and gear you’ve bought along aren’t enough, then you head to the stores around Thamel, near your hotel. You can either purchase or rent the necessary items.

We arrange all the required processes for the trek like permits beforehand for your convenience. Advancing your trip from Lukla, you come across typical Sherpa communities in places like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, and Khumjung. Throughout the journey, you'll come across friendly Sherpa people and get to observe their lifestyle patterns that will help you to understand the way of life in the Himalayan region.

The view of the mountain ranges will be magnificent as you reach the base camp. Celebrate the effort you have put into accomplishing this feat. You will then return to Lukla from Gorakshep via a helicopter. What better way to end this incredible 12-day trek journey than a scenic helicopter ride! Take on this adventurous trek during spring (March-May) or autumn (September-November) to enjoy the uninterrupted views of the majestic Everest range.

With Himalayan Kingdom, you get to travel to the best destinations of Nepal at affordable prices. Services like transportation and accommodation will be all of your choices. To make the trip meaningful, we have the best and experienced staff to accompany you on your desired trip.
